There is no such thing as a “safe space” —
We exist in the real world.
We all carry scars and have caused wounds.
seeks to turn down the volume of the world outside,
and amplify voices that have to fight to be heard elsewhere,
This space will not be perfect.
It will not always be what we wish it to be
It will be our space together,
and we will work on it side by side.
